Hi all,
I'm rebuilding my last M51 engine this year. Currently sat in the boot of the RR.

I've searched but can't seem to find anything.

I need one with wheels to move it and the ability to spin/turn the engine over (not start it up) to do work on it.

Are there specific bolts to fasten it on?

Last engine rebuild I did was a 2ltr flat 4 from my old camper in about 1994 on 2 pallets on the floor under my lean to outside 🤣

Thanks in advance 👍🏻

How much does it weigh? One of these https://www.machinemart.co.uk/p/clarke-ces340-340kg-engine-stand/ or one of these https://www.machinemart.co.uk/p/clarke-ces680f-680kg-folding-engine-stand/. The fittings adjust so you can make it fit to the bellhousing bolt holes on just about any engine.

Hoppy,

I have got one of those Clarke engine stands from Machine Mart.

It actually has an M51 bare block on it at the moment. Give me a ring if you want to come round and see what it is like.
Bring a mask.

Supposedly 135kgs dry from what I found.
Thanks to both of you, I wasn't sure if there were specific types for specific engines 😊

Dave, I bought the same stand as you, I went to Warrington it's just so much easier to park than Chester! I just need to slide it out of the car and into the garage now. Spent the last weekend putting up all the old kitchen cupboards 😁 Now I have storage space!
Will build the stand this weekend and hopefully mount the engine so I can wheel it around
